All right. Okay. Calm down. Let it all seep in for a minute. Breathe. I understand what you’re going through. Coherent thought has also left me in a lurch this morning. I just keep seeing aggressive tongue wrestling and shirt ripping. Also, I keep thinking I heard someone say something about a weird, new sire bond. Not sure what that’s about. Gah! I think I’m still out of it. What happened last night? Everything’s such a blur. Nothing’s quite making sense. At least the swooning has stopped. But the shaking is still happening at the most random of times. I think I might have blacked-out at some point during the night, as well. I don’t remember if it was all the Caroline & Klaus delightfulness, Jeremy being a crazy wackadoodle, or Damon and Elena finally . . . Oh, that’s right. Now I remember.
WARNING! This is a Spoiler Alert!
I just broke up with my girlfriend after she told me she has feelings for my brother. I’m not really surprised by this revelation, but I thought things were going good. Yeah, I might have been a little controlling. And I might have gone behind her back and betrayed her trust. But what she’s doing is way worse. Right? I still love her, but I can’t go on like this. What should I do?
Moody in Mystic
Despite what Caroline keeps telling you Moody, you need to let her go. Muscle-up all you want, but you’re not going to get Elena back any time soon. This “cure” won’t fix what’s already broken. Even if Elena becomes human again, she’ll still think you’re a total jackass like the rest of us. That includes your buddy Klaus, too. Good move telling – how did he put it, again? – “every teenage sycophant in town.” Yeah, you ticked him off real good.
Klaus orders Stefan to find some more vampires to kill or act as a replacement. Although, I think Stefan would much rather volunteer Damon for such a job. Bringing out his “I don’t give a damn” attitude once again, Bitchy Stefan tells his brother about his recent split with Elena. Damon seems befuddled by the news (Though we know he’s secretly doing his happy dance inside), quickly changing the subject to more pressing matters. Damon fills Stefan in on the latest with Professor Shane and his involvement with Pastor Eli, hoping to elicit some kind of reaction from Stefan. Yet, all he is met with his disdain. “Let’s not pretend like this isn’t the best day of your life.” That’s a low blow, Stefan. But you’re right, it totally is.
With the final preparations for the latest Miss Mystic Falls Pageant under way, Caroline believes it to be the perfect time to berate Elena about her choice in men – voicing her belief that Elena and Stefan are soulmates. If you ask me, she’s been reading a little too much Twilight, though I hardly think a thing like that is even possible. The blonde vamp basically voices her displeasure over Elena’s currents state as a vampire, wishing she were back to her old non-loving Damon self. If that wasn’t irritating enough, Creepy Professor Shane stops by, making us question who in the world asked this creeper to be a judge at the pageant.
Sometime later, Stefan stops by Mystic General. Though his rather random stop is somewhat questionable, his next actions make us worry for the sanity of our broody vampire. Um . . . Stefan? What are you doing? Going from room to room, he checks each patient’s chart. Not finding what he’s looking for, Stefan keeps pace until he spots a police guard outside another room. He compels the oblivious man to take leave, entering the tiny space to inspect its current resident – a guilty as charged murder. Bingo! Stefan rips open his skin, feeding the prisoner his blood, soon breaking his neck. Yep. It’s official. Stefan’s lost it; though he never really had it in the first place.
Exasperated by the poor working skills of others, a flustered Caroline (Who is acting much like the old, more human Caroline we used to know) finds more anxiety than solace (Which I find hard to believe) when Klaus stops by for a chat. The smiling cutie, after bickering with Caroline for a moment, finally receives notice of where and when their first date shall be. Score one for Team Klaus!
Somewhere in the backwoods of Mystic Falls, Werewolf Haley is making good on her promise, helping another hybrid break her sire bond; effectively securing Tyler as her date to Miss Mystic, if only to keep an eye on Caroline and Klaus. Yeah, right. Meanwhile, the consequences of becoming a hunter are taking their toll on Jeremy. His newfound super-strength is all fine and dandy, but dreaming about killing his vampire sister and woodworking in his sleep make him question what’s really going on. Matt seems to be the only one making sense, encouraging Jeremy to get some help. The young Gilbert reasons his recent personality changes could be the effect of Alaric’s magic ring. However, Matt believes the Hunter’s Curse is solely to blame. No psychotic breaks here.
When Jeremy receives a text from Stefan, the somewhat human has no idea what he would actually find when arriving at the Lockwood Cellar. Patiently waiting, Stefan inquires if Jeremy will take the chance to make his sister human again. With his newborn in tow, Stefan reaches for Jeremy, allowing the crazed baby vamp to sample the goods. Jeremy shouts, wondering what Stefan is doing. Now that his thirst for blood is unleashed, Stefan takes the newborn’s chains in his hands, ordering Jeremy to kill the spare. They need the map; it’s the only way to find the cure. Jeremy resists, making Stefan take drastic measures. He takes the chains, forcing Jeremy back as the newborn gets closer and closer to his spilled blood. Stefan threatens Jeremy, believing this to be some kind of scene from The Walking Dead, needing him to kill the vampire, to push forward in completing the Hunter’s Tattoo. Jeremy takes the stake, thrusting the carved wood into the baby vamp again and again. Another kill under his belt, Jeremy’s reasoning has gone out the window. Unable to be compelled into submission, Jeremy stabs Stefan in the chest, making his way to the party. On a side note: He’s vampire killing crazy, but Jeremy doesn’t kill Stefan? That’s a tad unbelievable, TVD writers. And considering Stefan has become a giant D-Bag in recent episodes (none more so than this), I cannot help but feel he deserves it.
Doing their best to help the awkward April Young in her attempt to participate in the Miss Mystic pageant, Caroline and Elena guide their innocent protégée toward the proper fashion choices. That is, until Damon enters the scene. Elena’s blush at the handsome vampire is not easily concealed, making Caroline wig-out at Elena’s now questionable new Damon-centered attitude. Ignoring the blonde, Elena follows Damon, requesting a bit of his time. Her eyes and smile speak louder than her actual words. She moves closer to her crush, their gaze never leaving one another. Elena finally confesses to him the real reason she broke up with Stefan. Damon’s surprise is evident, but his hope and love step forward, center stage.“Hey.” Arg! Stupid, evil, interrupting Professor Shane. They were having a moment! The spell broken, Damon leaves Elena to question (threaten) the Professor about the possibility of finding another hunter. His attempt goes unanswered, but finds out some rather interesting information. Even if they did complete the Hunter’s Mark, to gain access to the cure, they would need a certain kind of witch to break the spell which resides over it. A Bennett witch. Typical.
Although hilarious, a rather vexed Caroline is starting to get on Elena’s nerves. Luckily, a perfect (Vampire Barbie’s words, not mine. Though I would tend to agree) Klaus is ready to calm the incoming storm. Taking his love aside, he listens as she relieves her built up frustration over the Damon and Elena problem, believing something to be wrong as Elena, without fault, sides with Damon over every little thing. Klaus laughs, ensuring everything will make sense eventually. What’s that’s supposed to mean? I have no idea. Caroline wonders if Klaus has ever wished to be human again. He goes into a story about a hummingbird. We swoon. Klaus has a laugh, making fun of Caroline’s dedication to be on every Mystic committee. They also share a moment. We smile and clap our hands excitedly and begin writing KLAUS AND CAROLINE FOREVER on our Trapper Keepers.
After the results of the Miss Mystic pageant are revealed (though I find it very hard to believe April won after returning to the town about two weeks ago in Mystic time), Elena follows a once thought to be missing Jeremy into the Lockwood Mansion. She’s relieved to see the young Gilbert alive and okay during such uncertain times, but is soon disturbed by his actions. He takes his blade, cutting his skin, allowing the blood to drip down. Elena stiffens, slowly backing away. Crazy Hunter Jeremy persists, letting Elena know that her existence is wrong. Telling her that, the though he wants to protect her, the urge to kill her is just too strong. She’s a vampire. When Elena’s various attempts to reason with him fail, Jeremy easily slides a small, sharp wooden stake into her neck, incapacitating her. Stefan is there to stop Jeremy from taking it any further. Matt ushers Jeremy away, keeping the threat at bay for the time being.
Elena flees the suffocating space, confronting Stefan about his previous actions. She’s disgusted and enraged as he (sort of) tells her about making Jeremy kill vampires to gain access to the map. His stubborn way of thinking, sacrificing Jeremy’s humanity for Elena’s, makes her run into Damon’s arms without question. Stefan is so set on making Elena human again, he doesn’t see how his actions are affecting others. “I’m a vampire. You can’t fix me. Why can’t you accept me for who and what I am? If you won’t love me like this, let me go.”
That night, at the Gilbert home, Matt tells Jeremy the news. Instead of trying to help Jeremy or find a cure for his curse, the solution they all agreed upon was to remove Elena from the situation . . . but not really. Taking Elena’s place at home, Matt volunteers to look after the human.
Best Scene of the Night/The Scene Delena Shippers Have Been Waiting Three Seasons & Six Episodes For: In other news, Elena is moving in with the Salvatore Brothers! With Sadface Stefan deciding to crash at Caroline’s, this can only lead to good things. Good things, I tell you. Yeah. Yeah. Haley is in cahoots with Professor Shane. But who cares? Damon and Elena finally have some alone time to talk . . . and do other things. Thinking back on the previous events of the day, Elena admits that she wished she could have danced with Damon. Being the charming bastard that he is, Damon takes Elena’s hand, holds her close, and leads her into a romantic slow dance for two. The fireplace flickers. The lights are dim. We all break out into our happy dances, sighing with contentment. Only, Elena doesn’t seem to be too happy with the situation.
What? No. Don’t let go, Elena.
She looks up into Damon’s crystal clear baby blue eyes, liking what she sees. Trust. Lust. Love.
She leans in slowly, unsure, but knowing that she wants this. She needs this.
Their lips press together, softly at first, becoming more and more insistent with each pass. Sweet confessions of love turn into a rough domination over each other’s hearts and mouths.
Holy Moly. Is it getting hot in here?
In an instant, she has him right where she wants him. She rips his shirt, admiring the view, running her nails down, down, down.
Black lace. White sheets. It’s only a matter of time before the headboard breaks.
I’m They’re a little busy here, Caroline.
Hold the damn phone for a minute. I’m having a revelation.
Um . . . this is not the best time for this, Caroline.
What if it’s possible?
What if what’s possible?
It’s rare, but it happens. That’s why Klaus was so intrigued. Think about it. “Every time Elena has a problem, Damon has been the magic solution.” Damon says, jump. Elena jumps. Damon says, drink from the vein. Elena drinks from the vein. Damon says, kill Connor. Elena kills Connor. It’s so obvious, I wonder why we didn’t realize it before? Elena is sired to Damon.
Hahahaha! You’re hilarious, Caroline.
So, let me get this straight. You’re saying, Elena is . . .
Sired to Damon.
Um . . . really?
ELENA IS SIRED TO DAMON!?!?!?
